FOREWOHD 



This is the thirteenth of a series of statistical summaries on vegetable crops in Florida. 
Through the joint efforts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Office of the Agricultural 
Marketing Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Agricultural Economics, 
Agricultural Experiment Stations. University of Florida, data are presented on the acreage, pro- 
duction, and value of 17 vegetable crops with additional data on production and harvesting costs 
for certain crops in specific areas. 

The purpose of this publication is to present in summary form the more important and basic 
information that grovrers are likely to need in planning and analyzing their individual operations 
with respect to production and marketing problems. Complete historical data serve as a benchmark 
for plotting a futiare course. Their greatest value comes with an understanding of the past and 
an alertness for discerning i^he fut\n:'e. The Crop Reporting Service, also, issues monthly reports 
on the acreage and potential production of vegetable crops by seasons (fall, winter, spring, and 
summer). This timely periodic information when properly used should encourage judicious planting 
and more orderly marketing programs. The ready availability of facts, both current and historic, 
should exert a much needed stabilizing influence in an industry that is very sensitive to exagger- 
ations and unfounded rumors. 

V/ith the exception of the shipment information, the data contained herein are estimates and 
are based on reports by, and interviews with, growers, shippers, marketing, associations and organ- 
izations, seedsmen, railroad representatives, canners and other processors. We gratefully acknowl- 
edge our indebtedness to each person and organization contributing to the development of these 
data. 

We ftirther acknowledge the assistance extended by such agencies as the Agricultural Extension 
Service through its county agricultural agents, the Federal-State Inspection and Iferket News 
Services, the Florida State Marketing Bureau, the Florida State I^keting Board, the Agricultural 
Stabilization and Conservation Committee, the State Plant Board and other well informed sources. 

Vhch credit is due to our entire clerical personnel for the painstaking work they iflve done 
in preparing this booklet for publication. Arlene Kruse and Joyce Cooper handled most of the 
assembling of data and the cutting of stencils. 



UNITS FOR VEGETABLE ESTIMATES CEANGED . - 

Beginning with the 1956 annual summary, yield and production estimates were changed from a 
container or voliime basis to a weight basis. The unit used for fresh vegetables and melons is the 
hundredweight and that for strawberries is potinds. The reasons for changing from the heterogene- 
ous units formerly used to a tmiform basis include: (l) absence of laiiformity in containers used 
for some vegetables, such as lettuce and tomatoes, making it impossible to select a unit which can 
be understood in all producing sections; (2) changes in packing practices and varieties which have 
resulted in weight of individual containers so that the accuracy of data on a crate or bushel 
basis has been affected; (3) evidence that measurement of production in terms of weight is becom- 
ing more general. - - .. • . 

In the process of changing over in this volume, the himdredweight is used only in the State ' 
sximmaries and even there the comparable yield and price in the standard unit are shovm in paren- 
thesis. For those wishing to convert from the hundredweight unit to the popular or standard unit 
used in the past, conversion factors are given under the "All Seasons" State summary table of each 
commodity. Yield and production by counties and areas is still shovm in standard units, as in the 
past, except for Irish potatoes vjhlch is carried solely in hundredweight.

INDEX 



Each crop generally carries the following sequence of data hy season: Name of crop - Season; 
Acres for harvest by counties; Acreage, production and value - State sumrrary; Acreage and produc- 
tion by counties and areas, 1956-57; Shipping data; Per acre costs and returns. Crops that har- 
vest in more than one season are then combined in one total grouping classified as "all" and plac- 
ed before the breakdovm by seasonal groupings. Yellow pages are placed mainly as dividers between 
crops with per acre cost and returns on or adjacent theretot

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

SE ASONAL GROUPINGS - In order that competitive production within the State of Florida and the 
United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform groups, we have estab- 
lished a National pattern v/hich is based on the most active harvesting periods. These major groups 
are WINrm, SPRING, SIMMER, and FALL. The 'WINTER group includes the months of January, February, 
and March; SPRING includes April, I%y, and June; SUMMER includes July, August, and September 
(Florida carries no official summer commercial crops); and FALL includes October, November, and 
December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period for a particular grouping 
may extend into the preceding or following group. However, in arranging our data we have followed 
these groupings in so far as it is practical. For example, it has been considered practical to 
carry cabbage, cauliflower, escarole, lettuce, and strawberries as one season crops, designating 
them I'/INTER since the volume production is harvested generally during January, February, and March. 
Since some systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deemed best for all concerned to handle 
our classifications on a National basis even though they nay not alv.ays agree with some local 
designations nov; in use, 

PLANTED ACREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" concept. Esti- 
mates of planted acres for any seasonal grouping consist of acres for harvest (see next paragraph) 
during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for harvest during the season, but 
which v.as lost or destroyed and did not produce a crop in the season under consideration. If the 
acreage is lost and not replanted it is counted as planted . If it is lost but replanted for har- 
vest in the same season as the original acreage would have been haxvested, the acreage replanted 
is not considered as additional acreage planted. However, if the acreage lost is replanted for 
harvest in a later season, it is considered as planted for both seasons and as acres for harvest 
only for the latter season. 

ACRES FOR EAEVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from which a crop could have been har- 
vested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) warranted the harvest. It includes 
mature acreage on which the harvest -v-.Tas postponed or delayed too long due to economic reasons and 
the production lost thereby. Acreage which produces such lovj yields or poor quality that the crop 
is not worth picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not included in 
the acreage for harvest. Uhharvested acreage which produces yields which vjould be harvested at 
reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 



YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merdbantable quality produced on an acre basis and 
may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic reasons. 



PRODUCT! OH - Total production represents the 3rield times (X) the acres for harvest . Production of 
value is that part of the production v/hich was harvested and sold or utilized and does not include 
economic abandonment. 

EC0IT0I4IC ABAroOIMENT - This category includes mattire production not haxvested because of economic 
factors, such as iov; prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss of production includes quantities 
left in fields partially harvested as well as production on acreage abandoned for economic 
reasons. In the production tables in this book economic abandonment is the difference between 
the total production and the production of value. 

Acreage abandoned at any stage of growth before ma,turity will be considered as loss of acre- 
age or crop failiore rather than economic abandonment of production. 

AVErtAGE PRICE - All prices used in this report are per hundredweight on an F.O.B. basis or its 
equivalent, less selling charges. (Comparable average prices per standard unit is shown in 
parenthesis) . 

TOTAL VALUE - The total value is the average price per hundredweight times (X) the production of 
value. 



CA]\MED OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AW PRODUCTIOH - The acreage of vegetables in Florida planted solely 
for canning and other processing purposes during the period covered by this publication has been 
confined principally to cucumbers for pickles. The acreages of beans and tomatoes, the principal 
crops processed, are planted primarily for fresh narket, but each year substantial quantities are 
canned or frozen. 

In order to show the utilization of the production from the acreage brought to harvest, 
three columns on production are used in the State Summaries. The first shows the total production, 
the second shows the production sold for fresh market consumption, and the third shoves the produc- 
tion sold for processing (either canned or frozen). Production abandoned for economic reasons is 
the total production minus the sum of the production for fresh narket and processing. 

Those desiring to knovr the equivalent acreage utilized for processing should divide the 
number of hundredweight processed by the average yield then generally round to the nearest hundred. 
The prices given for processed beans and tomatoes are based on a per ton price and reduced to a 
per hundredweight price (rounded to the nearest whole cent). 

COSTS AND RETURNS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - This feature is contributed by the 
"Economics Department of Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. These tables represent the 
summarization of grower records or estimates of costs and returns per acre from several vegetable 
crops in the major producing areas of Florida for the 1956-57 season. In so fair as possible, 
growing and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded from costs of materials. 

MIXED CAR MOVEMENT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months on Page 87. 
These datSi include the equivalent cars shown in our regular shipment data under each specific 
crop carried in this publication.
